You might know TCL for its TVs, speakers, or audio goods, but it makes smartphones way too. In Europe, handsets bearing the Alcatel and BlackBerry brands are in fact designed by TCL, but in Asia it places its own manufacturer name on a vary of smartphones.
For the very first time, TCL has introduced (at IFA 2019 in Berlin, Germany) that it is bringing its mobile phone selection to Europe, with the TCL Plex top the charge. And it basically looks really excellent.
The TCL Plex has a triple-lens rear camera array consisting of a 48MP principal snapper, joined by a 16MP and 2MP sensor (presumably extremely-large angle and depth sensing respsectively), and a 24MP digicam on the entrance.
You will find a Snapdragon 675 chipset powering the cellphone, which is a very decent mid-vary processor, and an previously mentioned-normal 3,820mAh battery. You are also getting 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, which is fantastic for an affordable unit.
The TCL Plex design and style is superior-searching, with a shiny white or black finish and an S-formed sample going up the rear. It pretty much feels like TCL is using a leaf out of Huawei’s playbook with the patterned back again.
On the front of the handset, the exhibit is 6.53 inches, which is relatively significant, and it can be only broken by a small ‘punch-hole’ digicam in the prime left corner.
All in all, the TCL Plex appears to be like an outstanding smartphone, especially given it is established to launch at €329 (roughly $360, £295, AU$530) when it launches in Europe in late 2019. We will not know just about anything about release dates somewhere else, or what it’ll price tag when it does launch in other locations, but we are going to maintain you up to date.
With Alcatel devices commonly feeling a minor uninspired, it’s no question TCL has made use of its own title for the Plex, and we’re intrigued to see what new handsets come upcoming.
